Whilst recording the activities of some of the Shillingstone Bee population, this one suddenly took an interest in the camera. The resulting rare head-on shot, and the reflection of light in its' eyes, reaffirms the belief that they do not wear sunglasses. It's the first time I've been face to face with a bee, and it puts me in mind of a flying Jack Russel terrior.

Congratulations!! This is again superb and the head on is the icing on the cake. Thanks for the e-mail and I did have a bash at the bees, it is far from easy.
